Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Hi. I'm from Madrid. I don't see CFS as a specific category anywhere, but I am very unfamiliar with all this terms and I could be wrong.

    If you want to make more specific questions based on your experience I will try to help.

    For what I know, CFS has the number G93.3 in the the CIE-10 classification of diseases. In Table 1 in that page you provide, the G93.3 would be included in the Neuropsychiatric diseases, and below in Table 3 you can see the figures for these Neuropsychiatric diseases.

    Regards.

    Looking at the table with all the categories, I don't see it either, but my Spanish is not so good.

    I also used Google translate, and there was no CFS, CFIDS, or fatigue. Of course it might not translate properly.

    Hi,
    I don't expect CFS to be listed in that paper, so I'd like someone to visit the references 30-36 to see if CFS or a related category is listed. It may need some digging to find those references, I hope they are publicly available.

    Here in Spain, it's known as "fatiga crnica" - as I know only too well.

    My wife, who suffers from it, was actually quite pleased that a doctor was able to recognise it, she was used to pot luck whilst living in the UK, as to whether a doctor would recognise it, or just say that it didn't exist.

    The national health insurance system threw out her claim for it, when it became fiercer after cancer, and she was in no state to handle the stress of challenging their decision, and the general opinion here is that nothing can be done at all, just deal with it. And there are so many charlatans that we haven't done anything privately.

    But at least I know what it's called now!

    Wow, computergenius, that sounds terrible. I guess there is little chance of government disease burden statistics for fatiga crnica then...
